If you’ve been to Grand Central Market, you’ve been to an interesting, and historic, LA landmark. Located in Downtown’s Historic Core district, the Market is LA’s first open air market, housed in the first concrete and reinforced structure in LA. When you visit, it sometimes can feel like you’re traveling through time– the Market has a distinct character that’s very much its own. Inside you can find a variety of foods that makes it hard to choose what to order for lunch– tacos, Chinese, sandwiches, etc. That variety is what makes the market so fun– in fact, we take our interns there on special field trips– we all choose whatever food we want, and then we walk across the street to Angels Flight and ride the trolley up to California Plaza.
We just pinned a Historypin collection of photos of Grand Central Market from the 1970s. Here’s a preview:
